Membership-based operator Surf Air has relocated its London service to London City airport, with flights taking off from this month. The move from London Luton took place following feedback from members and is intended to increase convenience for business travellers.

The company is also expanding its European operations and is now operating a daily weekday service between London and Zurich, as reported in the November EBAN. Flights from Zurich to Luxembourg and Munich will commence in early 2018 in response to member demand and from the increasing frustration with other commercial options felt by frequent travellers, the company says.

Surf Air is also adding two new aircraft to its European operation; a pair of PC-12s. The latest additions join the current fleet of Embraer Phenom 300s based at London City.

CEO Simon Talling-Smith comments: “Our convenient subscription model and streamlined service is a good fit for the demanding schedules of busy professionals and frequent travellers. Surf Air gives them back more time to enjoy their lives instead of queuing and waiting around in airport terminals. Our move to London City airport is what our members asked for and reflects the demand for a more efficient approach to business travel.”

London City airport's CCO Richard Hill adds: “The Surf Air business model adds an exciting new offering to our time-poor business travellers, which will complement our extensive airline network. Its customers will benefit from the outstanding facilities of our private jet centre, which offers luxury, speed and convenience, and our team looks forward to getting to know each member personally so it can cater for their exact requirements.”
